UPDATE: Now that the Romney campaign is arguing that Mitt Romney's Mormonism is a reason to vote for him, let's have an honest discussion about what the Mormons believe and do. And people can decide for themselves if this is a reason to vote for Mitt Romney.
I'm I'm bumping this post. Among others.
From Andrea Stone at Huffington Post:
Anne Frank, the Jewish girl whose diary and death in a Nazi concentration camp made her a symbol of the Holocaust, was allegedly baptized posthumously Saturday by a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to whistleblower Helen Radkey, a former member of the church.How intolerant of Anne Frank to keep saying "no."
The ritual was conducted in a Mormon temple in the Dominican Republic, according to Radkey, a Salt Lake City researcher who investigates such incidents, which violate a 2010 pact between the Mormon Church and Jewish leaders.
Radkey said she discovered that Annelies Marie "Anne" Frank, who died at Bergen Belsen death camp in 1945 at age 15, was baptized by proxy on Saturday. Mormons have submitted versions of her name at least a dozen times for proxy rites and carried out the ritual at least nine times from 1989 to 1999, according to Radkey.
I wonder how many times Daniel Pearl will have to go through this.
